Syllable, AtheOS The Syllable project has published the source code for Syllable Server. The code to build Syllable is maintained in Builder, the build system. There is a main repository of build specifications and overlays for Syllable Desktop and Syllable Server. The code for Server is now completely published in the source repository. A package of Builder (11 MB) for Syllable Server has been released that corresponds to Syllable Server 0.2 with a few fixes. The procedure to build Syllable Server will be the subject of an article in a future Syllable Newsletter.

That's Syllable Desktop, not Syllable Server ;-)

Now I am confused- what is Syllable? Linux distribution or Amiga OS clone? Desktop and Server got different base systems?

Syllable Desktop is based on Amiga, and it's a complete operating system. Syllable Server is the same userspace built on top of a Linux kernel.

You are wrong. Syllable Desktop is based on/is AtheOS. The original maintainer stopped developing it and Syllable was born for the sake of keeping the project alive and the desktop of course.

Syllable is an Open Source operating system. There is Syllable Desktop, which has it's own kernel, drivers etc. and is a unique OS. Syllable Server is a new project which complements Desktop and is based on Linux. Eventually Server will run the same GUI that Desktop has.

If you want to try Desktop quickly there are LiveCD's and VMWare images available. It also runs well on a wide range of hardware if you'd like to install it:

Syllable is a bit like a cross between BeOS, Amiga and Linux.
